This is a 15-minute guided meditation in which we engage in the practice of settling body, speech and mind in their natural states. This practice is a wonderful preparation for any meaningful endeavour and can be used as a meditation in itself or as a preliminary practice to a longer meditation session. The purpose of the practice is to settle the body, speech & mind with the three qualities of relaxation, stillness & clarity. By practising in this way, our mind will settle, and it’s luminous, peaceful, blissful and nonconceptual nature will reveal itself.
This short session is an adaptation of the practice as taught by B. Alan Wallace, and has its roots in the great Indian Buddhist master Padmasambhava. It is found in the book ‘Natural Liberation’ by Gyatrul Rinpoche, translated by Alan Wallace, and Dassetu has received the oral transmission of this portion of the text.
